Default Ice cream sandwich!!!

First of all, with hopefully less than an month to go, Ive noticed not too much has been said about Thunderbolt getting this prestigious update,lately.I'm personally looking fwd to this because,my Bolt's only handycap has been it will not charge fully. Only get about 77-80% tops. I to am looking for and watching for the next Big Thing. Being that my Bolt with it"s trusty and still to this day handy kickstand, does everything i want and needs it to do, also runs Market apps pretty well. Looking fwd to ICS and the new Sense 3.6, to carry me until Oct when I will be eligible for an upgrade to hopefully the Next Big Thing. The Desire HD misfortune caused a scare but it seems we are still in contention of receiving ICS Love. Anyone else feeling the excitement? Could be like having a new device...ICS Sense 3.6. (Bloatware removing capabilities)If Biggie Red does not screw it up. I want all their apps gone. Peace Thunderbolt Fam...

I can't bring myself to be excited until it happens. The Desire issue has me nervous: HTC Thunderbolt Ice Cream Sandwich Update Officially in Trouble.

There is a lot of speculation without getting the complete facts. HTC has now provided an explanation as to why the Desire HD updated could not be made (HTC explains decision to drop Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich update | Android Central). As you can see, the problem has to do with the partition in the storage which is too small for ICS. The Desire HD only has 1.5 GB of storage, while the TBolt has 4 GB of storage. Hopefully the partition space is large enough for ICS on the TBolt. At least, there is more room for it than on the Desire HD. The issue is neither RAM nor CPU-related based on this explanation, so until they say the contrary, I will continue to wait for this update.

Very good point. Thanks for sharing that bit of info. It allows me and the rest of the Thunderbolt Fam to keep hope alive. We have one month to go and hopefully we will see or start hearing positive reports that the update does indeed exist and will eventually come into existence. The Rezound seems to be on time as far as their update timetable. Let us all hope that August finally has an holiday to be celebrated, Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 3.6...

I had that same problem. No ROM or new battery will fix it. Just take it back if you're still under warranty. FYI, when I took it back a few weeks ago they replaced it with a Rezound.

Amazing that 4.0 came out within 6 months of when I purchased my TB, yet it takes 10 more months to get the update. Are they planning to release major updates on the phone you buy after its hardware is obsolete? Hell of a way to run company.

That's how it works with phone companies. They mainly try to get an update out for the newer phones first then work their way back to older phones. Almost every phone company does this.

Honestly, I'm surprised we're even going to get ICS

This is one reason why I left the iPhone: Leaving my older device in the dust as you increase performance on newer models pisses me off. Lesson learned, shame on me.

Lol, yeah, this forum seems kind of dead. But this rom is awesome. The only issue I can find is mms isn't working

So, this ends the speculation and all the chat from naysayers who insisted the TBolt was not getting ICS.

It should push out some time in the next 10 days if they're going to go with HTCs time frame. Though technically HTC will release it soon, I don't think Verizon has to if they don't want to.

That's what's up. We almost there. Waiting for someone to youtube it before official release. Gonna do a search shortly. Anyone think or know if ICS and Sense 3.6 will be more battery friendly???

There is a video from Android Central:
HTC ThunderBolt with Ice Cream Sandwich - YouTube

Too early to know about battery life, though.

I remember HTC claimed Thunderbolt would never see Sense 3.0. What could be so different that we can receive 3.6? I ain't mad at em though...btw I checked the video,now let's hope it gets here quickly. My upgrade will be in Oct. So it should hold me over until then. Hopefully there will a beast of an device possessed by Big Red by then, preferably by HTC. Hopefully with a kickstand... Ya feel me?

Default TBolt ICS Stock ROM

I've been running the stock HTC ROM for almost 24 hours now, and I can say that it's a massive improvement over 2.3. I can't compare it to the 'bolt's stock ROM since I've been rooted almost from day one, but the battery life seems to be improved, the performance is definitely improved - I was amazed at how fast Titanium Backup loaded everything from the OS compared to how long it took on GB ROMs. TwistedUmbrella has a great ROM, now that the ril is out, I'm looking forward to, and hoping that Twisted completes the ROM. I tried the 3.6 for a little while, decided it wasn't anything I haven't already seen in other ROMs with 3.5, etc. and just went back to TSF Shell (which is ~$17 but worth every penny, and a subject for a different thread).

TL;DR It's a great upgrade, noticeably better battery life and performance - like having a new phone.

Isaac just got upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane! That's a pretty good storm. Doesn't help with the ICS deal though...

The latest rumor I heard on this was about a soak test through September 3rd. If the 3rd comes and goes with no new RUU soaks, the update'll probably (pure speculation) be pushed out around the 10th or so. I pop in here and a few other places every day, but things are pretty quiet, which may be good new as far as a early to mid September rollout. It'll breathe new life into this phone...especially for those of us whose upgrade date isn't until 2013.

Does it allow you to remove Big Red's bloatware. Being that you are rooted, you probably already done that. Just wanted to know for us non rooted if ,(that is if Verizon doesn't screw with it much)we will be able to remove the nonsense apps, with the new Sense UI???

If you're asking if non-rooted users can remove bloatware, don't count on it.

You are probably right. Just thought the new Sense UI would allow that capability,but even if it does Verizon will probably restrict it from happening. Just wishful thinking I suppose. Hopefully we will hear something (else) soon...

Good question. No idea. That may be something the developer of the app can answer but I don't know if the issue is GB-related or HTC-specific for some other reason.

In this case no news is bad news, halfway through the month and I can hear a rat piss on cotton. HTC's logo Quiet brilliantly is the opposite of what I expect as it pertains to this elusive update. Htc and Big Red are coming up small with yellow streaks and no backbone. We want, need, and deserve some news pertaining to ICS and Sense 3.6. Now...

So when the hell is the OTA coming??
In this case no news is bad news, halfway through the month and I can hear a rat piss on cotton. HTC's logo Quiet brilliantly is the opposite of what I expect as it pertains to this elusive update. Htc and Big Red are coming up small with yellow streaks and no backbone. We want, need, and deserve some news pertaining to ICS and Sense 3.6. Now...

I thought HTC was blaming VZW and VZW was blaming HTC?

Unfortunately, this is driving me to an iphone 5 cause I think HTC is not interested in us any longer. Each update has been slow in coming, and their silence is deafening. What a shame.

Why is it driving you the iPhone 5? If anything, it would drive me to a Nexus phone. No worries about "skins" delaying updates. Besides, if rumors are true we may have 5 different ones to choose from. Insofar as the TBolt updates, we don't know if HTC has already delivered the update to Verizon and it is Verizon holding things up.

HTC and the service providers like Verizon need to shit, or get off the pot.
